The International Association Board and FIFA have decided to modernize football to a whole new level. They have recently approved artificial intelligence sensor technology for data tracking during official matches. The innovative technology was developed by Playermaker in 2019.

The technology gathers information on technical balance, kicking, velocities, speed, distance, acceleration, and time on the ball. The sensors attach to players’ boots and capture the data. It has since become a historical device, the first used in lower-body tracking in modern football, taking it to a new level.


Playermakers have already received recognition from over 200 professional clubs, including treble winners Manchester City. The aim is to raise player performance to a whole new level by allowing players and coaches to analyze unique skills and tactics during training and matches.

FIFA’s approval makes a ground-breaking achievement as it underlines the potential of technology to impact the game significantly. The company’s CEO, Guy Aharon, is excited about the future. He believes sport and technology have come a long way into being friends, and they can achieve big things in a minute’s time. FIFA’s acknowledgment certainly marks their intent to promote the growth and improvement of the game as the world awaits the execution.
